Thoughts and Prayers to Fort McMurray

I've been watching the reports coming in from Fort McMurray all evening.  They are quite terrifying!

This small Alberta city is under siege by a raging forest fire.  The authorities have ordered a complete evacuation of most of the city! 

Parts of the city appear to be on fire or already destroyed.  I think I can speak for all of Beiseker's council in saying our thoughts and prayers go to all those folks in Fort McMurray.  We hope that you all are able to reach safety tonight.  Over the coming next few days and weeks there will a multitude of projects coming from Southern Alberta to help you all through this difficult time.  You are not alone!

If you want to help people displaced by disaster, you can donate to the Canadian Red Cross through their Alberta Fires Appeal.
